    I do that all the time.  It’s actually how I write, and I’ve made myself tear up multiple times while crafting scenes.

    For anyone freaking out, those are not teeth, no matter how much they look like it (they’re flexible little tendrils).  Those are indeed the scallop’s eyes, though.

    Very true.  That stuff’s from the manga, where she’s a somewhat different character (more pure evil, as I understand it).  Granted, I wish we’d gotten that massive action sequence at the end where they apparently throw an entire army at her just to distract her and give Akame an opening, but ultimately I kind of prefer the anime version of the character, if not the action climax.
    Evil with a softer side, one that’s actually real, is something I don’t see that often.

    That’s the weird part about Esdeath (the villain; name’s a Japanese pun): she’s a little more complex than you’d expect.  Based on her intro scene, you’d kind of figure her soldiers follow her out of fear, she kills minions who fail her, that sort of stuff...except that’s not how this woman rolls.
    Her soldiers are fiercely loyal, not because they fear her, but because they respect her.  She eats her meals with the common troops, ensures that any financial reward she gets is distributed among her soldiers and comforts her subordinates when they’re upset.  No, seriously, at one point one of her minions is really broken up over another one dying, and Esdeath sits there and holds her while she cries.  Another time, a different subordinate is worried about taking his mask off in front of the others because of something about his face (we never see it), and Esdeath tells him he has nothing to worry about and to take the mask off and eat dinner with his teammates.  He does, and nobody says a thing.  It’s...actually kinda sweet.  Her feelings for Tatsumi (the hero) are also apparently genuine, even if she doesn’t really know how to express them.
    This is the same woman who did the scary-badass villain intro with bodies on spikes.  It’s actually kind of what drew me to the character, the multiple dimensions to her.  Villainy is her job, and it’s a job she clearly loves (she was asked to make an example of those Northerners, and she got creative), but when she’s not “working”, she can be a legitimately pleasant person to be around.
    And damn it all, JayDee, you gave me an idea for a potential semi-romantic smut fic!  See, there’s an episode where Esdeath and Tatsumi get stranded on a tropical island, and I could...uh...work with that.

    She also covered an entire continent in a blizzard that allowed her to instantly kill anyone she wanted in its confines by snapping her fingers. She created a army over a couple days, Can freeze time once a day.
    Might makes right kinda lady.

    I’m guilty of this with in Oblivion. TAF scared the hell out of me after he died and he came back. Paralyzed him so he fell to his death wasn’t permanent. At least until I learned how to delete him like a vengeful god.

    I kinda want to get on the wrong side of Labyrinth fans and write some Sarah/Ludo.
    “So hairy!”
    “Look, it’s the 80s ok,” muttered Sarah, stepping from her panties.
    The Adoring Fan was especially famous for people leading him to the highest sheer cliff reachable in game, and then causing him to have the kind of accident referred to as “natural causes” for Russian doctors. And then three days later he’d rise again completely unaware like some kind of mentally challenged Jesus.
    I’m sure if you did know the fandom you’d be as appalled as anyone at some big muscular orc warrior woman getting into various sexual situations with a scrawny little wood elf fuck.
    I haven’t seen the show, but I’m sure you’d do a good job of writing a romance wth an utterly evil character.

    I’d forgotten about some of the stuff you’ve written.  I’ll take your word on the Adoring Fan pairing.
    I only remember Umbridge from the films, so I can’t say what she’s like in the books, but I never really got the impression romance was a thing for her.  Also fairly certain she’s a horrible person but...heh...about that…
    *Googles* Heroine/villain romance.  Yeah, that’s about where I -OH DEAR GOD IS THAT WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE?!  Seriously, though, that’s almost where I am right about now.
    Alright, so I don’t know that I have a story to write about these two but...

    If you’ve seen the show, then you know who these people are and I’M SORRY!  I KNOW, I KNOW!
    *ahem*
    If you haven’t seen AgK, then on the left is the hero of the show.  On the right is the villain of the show...who canonically has a massive crush on said hero, and this isn’t one of them harmless, goofy bad guys.
    When she was introduced in a city she’d just conquered with corpses impaled on spikes and all, I was “Oh, hell yes, this is going to be such a badass villain!” and I wasn’t wrong.
    And then she caught sight of the hero and blushed so hard it was probably visible from space and I was like “Oh, God, this is hilarious,” and her affection and his NOPE continued to be hilarious.
    And then eventually I realized “Oh, no...God help me I think I’m into this.”
    So, again, with regards to shipping, I know I shouldn’t...but I am.

    Checking pairing tags on fanfiction.net and AO3, this one is actually one of the most popular pairings in the Western fandom (no idea how things stand in the Japanese fandom), so at least I’m not alone!
    Do you remember anything specific?  I mean, in terms of the pairings thing, not in terms of your myriad offenses against good taste.
